Manual or Automatic

Scenario: You have one car and one car only - it can be anything you like; a 10-year old Festiva with nicotine stained seats or a Mercedes CL65 AMG.

What do you prefer? Automatic or manual? There is no such thing in this poll as semi-auto, Tiptronic or whatever. Clutch or not clutch - it's that simple.

I have an auto (as does my wife) and I really miss changing gears. :(

Don't think so. Not that you'd have time to change gear in a CL65... lol

I have to admit at this juncture that I actually look forward to the very rare occasions when I get to drive my father-in-law's Nissan van. It's got 3 pedals and a stick thing in the middle, you see...
